Thanks to Chris Cox and Mike McCombs for writing about our international wheelchair tennis tournament.

The Professional Tennis Registry couldn't put on an event of this magnitude without the incredible generosity of area businesses. Special thanks to the Town of Hilton Head Island, the Island Recreation Association and Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort for providing excellent facilities for the tournament.

And thanks to local businesses: Bi-Lo, Carrabba's Italian Grill, CeraSport, Chick-fil-A, CVS, Enterprise Car Rental, Harris Teeter, Jim 'N Nick's Barbeque, Kennickell Print & Communications, Larry's Subs, The Litter Box, Mangiamo's, Pearlstine Distributors, Photography by Dayle, Piggly Wiggly, Rita's Ice, Savannah Mobility Sales, Spinnaker Resorts, Subway, Vacation Time and Walmart.

But thanks mostly to the people of Hilton Head Island who came out to support and volunteer for the event, transporting players, serving lunches, chasing balls and cheering enthusiastically for these incredible, determined athletes. May we all learn from them to passionately pursue our goals (and our lives) without regard for obstacles.

Thank you to everyone who made this event possible.
